Baker District workshop sets stage for vision, goals

Guelph, Ont., January 4, 2019 – You’re invited to attend one of two drop-in workshops on January 15 as we gather community input to help shape the sustainability vision and goals for the Baker District redevelopment project.

The workshops will run from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. in the Canada Company Hall at River Run Centre, 35 Woolwich Street. The content for both sessions is the same, and you can drop in or leave at any point.

Come talk with City staff and members of the Windmill Development Group team about the development and One Planet Living design principles. You can also provide input into the new central library design and programming by talking with library staff and members of the Invizij Architects Inc. team.

Workshop content will be online at by January 25 for community members who can’t attend the open house.

About the project

The Baker District redevelopment is a City of Guelph project aimed at transforming the existing parking lot and properties fronting the north end of Wyndham Street into a unique mixed-use development, including new central Guelph Public Library.

The Downtown Secondary Plan envisions the district becoming a model of urban intensification that drives visitors to the downtown and encourages business to thrive within its boundaries by combining residential and commercial/institutional spaces. The project also includes public parking and an urban square.
